Body cut down to pick up and new rear window fashioned
tail gate cut out and shaped
engine compartment adjusted slightly to accommodate batteries
truck bed given wooden panels
motor and speed controller differential added to rear wheel drive system and electrics wired as close as possible
body work adjusted to be fairly road legal (just for Al and Buck lol)

















comments, criticism, abuse and micky taking welcome as per usual

Electricity may be the way of the future but nothing will ever replace the sound of a well tuned IC engine.

You did a nice job of the conversion Colin.

So  neatly done.  I have a book on very early electric vehicles (1920s) and some "yard work trucks" were electric.  It's the future, by necessity.
